Teppei (RAK) was taken off the active roster today after he was diagnosed with an incomplete fracture in his right pinky toe.  Teppei will require about 6 weeks for a full recovery, meaning he may very well be done for the year.

Teppei was hit by a pitch on his right foot in the 9th inning of last night's game against the Chiba Lotte Marines.  He didn't come out of the game and was actually the runner that crossed the plate on Norihiro Nakamura's walk-off RBI single.
